Pomona College is committed to advancing the diversity of our community. The College is navigating a critical turning point on issues of access, diversity, equity, and inclusivity. We believe that this critically important work is at the heart of the liberal arts, and we look to engage all members of our community as we chart a path forward. As a globally recognized institution in Southern California—a region at the forefront of diversity, openness, and innovation—we must lead the way.

A diverse student body and curriculum gives Pomona students unique and important opportunities for intellectual, emotional and ethical growth. It provides them with the necessary tools to face the challenges of today’s world—political divisiveness, social upheaval, and structural inequities—creatively and to build communities and organizations that are open, vibrant, and diverse.

Education is an essential mechanism for addressing historical injustices and for grappling with contemporary inequities. Placing diversity at the center of the College’s educational mission means providing leadership in social change and modeling what such change looks like.

We believe numbers alone do not indicate success in achieving a dynamically diverse community. The College places great importance on providing resources and energy toward enhancing a campus culture in which all students, faculty, and staff feel welcome and supported.
